    If of interest, the Complete Shabad is below. It is a "Chaupad" and has "Rahao Stanza" followed by four stanzas. I have attempted an interpretation for each tuk and the Shabad outside of the quoted from srigranth.org.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ
    ੴ सतिगुर प्रसादि ॥
    Ik▫oaʼnkār saṯgur parsāḏ.
    One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:
    ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਕੇਵਲ ਇਕ ਹੈ। ਸੱਚੇ ਗੁਰਾਂ ਦੀ ਦਇਆ ਦੁਆਰਾ ਉਹ ਪਾਇਆ ਜਾ ਸਕਦਾ ਹੈ।

    ਅਕਾਲ ਪੁਰਖ ਇੱਕ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਦੀ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਨਾਲ ਮਿਲਦਾ ਹੈ।

    Creator's understanding is like a lighted lamp in the mind.

    The darkness dissipates and it feels as though mind space gets filled with gems of understanding and virtue.

    In such an enlightenment of understanding, one cannot find words to describe the creator's virtue.

    One feels as though threaded into the creator being the cloth and becomes one with the creator.

    Wordly affairs and cares become insignificant and ego is subdued.

    In such a state one one experiences the creator in body and mind, one does not feel the separation from the creator.

    The light from the creator's understanding makes one realize the one creator present everywhere.

    One creator, omni-present appears as the support for all creation.

    The creator appears as pious and the purest of pure in such enlightened mind.

    Nanak, the creator is infinite and of status higher than the highest.

    All errors are mine and I stand corrected.

    Sat Sri Akal.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
